Free Webinar: Part D Extra Help and California’s Home and Community Based Services Programs

February 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PST

When: Tuesday, February 25, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET

In 2012, the Affordable Care Act expanded the Part D Extra Help (also known as the Low-Income Subsidy “LIS”) program such that dual eligibles enrolled in certain Home and Community-Based Services (“HCBS”) programs should not be charged any co-pays for Part D drugs. Despite the change in the law, dual eligibles enrolled in Community Based Adult Services (“CBAS”) and some in the Multipurpose Senior Services Program (“MSSP”) have been improperly charged co-pays since 2012. The number of impacted individuals is around 30,000. Starting this year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) is beginning to properly assess co-pays and retroactively reimburse them, and dual eligibles will begin receiving reimbursements in the next several weeks.

This webinar will discuss what advocates need to know during this process, including:

  • An overview of the relevant Part D Extra Help (“LIS”) rules;
  • Identifying different populations impacted;
  • A summary of the co-pay and reimbursement processes;
  • The timeline for reimbursements and template notices beneficiaries will receive; and
  • How to assist beneficiaries, including the Best Available Evidence Rule.

Who should participate:
Advocates who work with California’s dual eligibles, individuals interested in California’s dual eligible demonstration, and other stakeholders.

Presenter:
Denny Chan, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging

This webinar will take place on Tuesday, February 25, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET. 

Closed captioning will be available during this webinar. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webinar start time.
